It is an iDevice. Nobody cares. :p

I'd rather be next to a rider that can maintain a controlled wheelie than a muppet on their phone.

I'm still into a 4S and proud of it, lol!

Bought it new a while back because these latest phones are scary expensive. I personally wouldn't appreciate the newest tech anyway.

Probably pretty much the same as my iPhone 6, which was pretty much the same as my iPhone 5. So nah.

After dealing with a droid for 3 years, i'm done. Pretty much every droid/android phone I've dealt with has been a nightmare.

Nothing is more frustrating then me trying to get my POS droid to do the simplist of tasks like browse the web and the person sitting right next to me with the same cell phone provider (verizon) on their iphone 4 is just flying through web pages, etc. texting, completely reliable.

I've owned an iPod touch since 2009 (6 years) I have literally never turned the thing off, it's been on for 6 years straight. And it has NEVER given me a problem, it's been 100% reliable...

Say what you want, throw as many specs at me you can, I'm big on PC vs Mac, (i'm a PC fan boy) but I've lost complete faith in any droid/android. I have no experience in windows phones either, but I don't really like the layout of them.

I'm in your boat too, due to reliability. I have a Samsung Galaxy tab 2 and I'm pretty sure it's the worst piece of technology on the planet. My friend literally gave it to me, for free, because it pissed him off so much, he would rather have no tablet then that tablet. It took me 4 hours trying to get a damn Samsung update because the thing wouldn't turn off to complete the update. It's like trying to run windows 95 again lol

Seems like my friends with androids need new phones more frequently then the iPhone crew as well, when I also have my iPhone 5 that's ready as a backup if my 6 ever goes down.

Samsung is horrible. My Wife went iPhone 5 > 6 > 6 plus. Then got the LG G4 the same day I got mine. She loves it.

I own a Mac because I don't game, I liked the iPhone around the 4, then saw the low spec bump in the 4S. Got a Galaxy S2, and my love for Android was born.

My Wife likes taking selfies with the kids, and to have a front facing camera that is clearer than the 6 plus rear camera she likes it. Also the macro opportunity with the rear camera is amazing on the G4.

Photo of a spider I took today with my G4. Also the photos I took of the kids in simply amazed.

No doubt certain android camera's are much better than the iPhone. My mom has an S4 and it takes amazing pictures, but she always has a problem trying to focus and take the picture at the exact time, or switching to video accidentally, etc.

I like the HD slo-mo feature the iPhone 6 has a lot though

Camera doesn't sell a phone for me though, it's more about reliability and usability.

That is true. All the Android devices i have a reliabe (S2, Z, Z1, Nexus 5, G4).

Camera was best on Z, Z1 and G4.

I was considering picking up a nexus 5 wifi tablet at some point, as they seem to have pretty decent reviews. Phone wise I'm too scared and poor to implement anything else when I have 2 iPhones that work great lol. Plus I have a jailbreak and I love some of the open source tweaks.

Nexus 5 is the phone.

Nexus 7 (old) and 9 (new) are the tablets.

I have both the 5 and 7 and they work great.

My Wife went from Apple ecosystem to Android. Having AOSP and open source Android, most of the JailBreak "tweaks" are standard on Android.

Forgot, that the 2 kids have Nexus 7 tablets (one is my old one), the other kid has a Nexus 4, and the other a Xperia Z2 Tablet. My Wife and the other Son were the only "Apple" people in our household.

If they'd make a flip phone with a camera as good as a "smart" phone I'd switch back in a heart beat. A couple years ago I finally caved and bought a used Iphone4 because I wanted a camera better then 1.3megs. I f'ing hate these stupid phones. My flip had signal everywhere, would roam to any carrier, and never had a screen break because gasp! it flipped closed. What a concept. I could text without looking because it used actual buttons you could feel to type.

My current i4 still makes calls, texts, and pics. Nothing newer does that stuff any better besides maybe pic quality. Not worth an even bigger f'in case to take up more pocket space and a massive amount of money to me. It really does feel like we keep going backwards with phones these days.

'06 F4i- Yoshimura RS-3C, Racetech springs and valves, Ohlin's rear shock, steel brake lines, 520 conversion. 87k miles and counting.....
'08 600RR- Stripped trackbike. CRG shorty brake lever, goodridge front brake lines
'15 1000RR- weekend toy

If you have a solid case on it you won't break your phone at all. I slammed the damn hood of my car on my iPhone screen side up in its otter box.

If you don't use your smart phone to its full capabilities then it's pretty much a total waste of money(most people don't IMO). But literally anytime I need or want to know or learn something on the spot, Iphone is fast,and perfect. It's a computer in your pocket man. GPS is a lifesaver for me since I'm always traveling, waze with police updates is most helpful, music, working on a timing belt, want to confirm you did it right? Bust out the iPhone.
